Future Dates

October 31 – November 3, 2019
September 3 – 6. 2020

Next year's Sundance Stompede will start on Halloween night, so our Kick-Off Dance will also serve as our Halloween Party. complete with costume contest.

In 2020 the Sundance Stompede will double as the annual convention of the IAGLCWDC. This will still be the same Stompede you know and love, with some added features such as a dance competition and forums.
